in iraq, or afghanistan, by maintaining our current level of troops for the next ten years and nobody believes we'll maintain the current level of troops we have in iraq, or afghanistan, for the next ten years, so, this is phony savings, as is the claimed half trillion dollars in interest savings by not spending the trillions we weren't going to spend otherwise. alisyn: there are reports, obviously, the president invited congressional leaders, democratic and republicans, to the white house tomorrow and there are also reports out yesterday, "the new york times," that the white house has agreed to cut in entitlements. and, sounds like there may be progress, and, room to open the debate? >> there could be, but the question about the entitlement cuts is, are they real? are they likely to be realized and are they sooner rather than later? the president, we need to be on a glide path but for example the president offered, again, from my discussions with people who are knowledgeable about these discussions, between the white house and the congress, is they've offered a trillion dollars worth

of the wars in the iraq and afghanistan, it's about taking care of those bush tax cuts, it's about taking care of the medicare prescription drug bill. all those costs. and to say we're going to forget about those and worry about the future when our kids are the ones that will suffer is irresponsible. so i don't think the president would want to act unilaterally, nor do i think congress has to force the president into acting unilaterally. we can get this done. this is a manufactured crisis because for seven different occasions under president bush, under 17 or 18 different occasions under president reagan republicans voted to lift the debt ceiling because they knew we would default on our debts for the first time in history. jenna: so let's say we're moving towards this deadline, and we actually are -- >> we are. jenna: august 2nd, right? you've seen so many different numbers and you mentioned so many different issues, and i don't mean to gloss over that in generalities, but there's so much involved in this decision about the debt ceiling and also about cutting spending overall. but where do yo
